This edition: Russians in the 9th DistrictTweet
Original tape date: October 5, 2011.
First aired: October 5, 2011.
On this edition of Independent Sources, we focus on how the Russian community helped a Republican candidate usurp a longtime Democratic stronghold in New York City. We discuss whether President George W. Bush's push for democracy in the Middle East had an influence on the Arab Spring. Then, we see how community bookstores are popping up while national chains are fading away.
